to an amnesty for immigrants with no right to be in the u.k. the bbc's tom simons has this report. >> in may, it was as big as the population of cambridge. by july, the home affairs select committee said new castle. now the m.p.'s are measuring the immigration back log by country. iceland has a population of just over 300,000. and the total immigration back log for the last three months is 302,064. that includes what's called the migration refusal pool, 174,000 people who should have left britain because they don't have the right to stay here. 25,000 live cases currently being dealt with, and a controlled archive of 74,000 past asylum cases which are outstanding. this number at least is falling, but the m.p.'s say more needs to be done. >> it's spiraling out of control, and they need to take urgent action to deal with cases quickly, to close those cases, and then remove people from the country. who have no right to be here. the committee is concerned this will result in rushed decision making and an amnesty for some applicants. but the government says every day is getting harder to be an ill
, are democrats reluctant to talk about entitlements? if so, why? let's bring in our panel. simon rosenberg, founder of ndn and former clinton campaign advisor. chris wilson, former gop consultant and former director of the texas republican party. welcome to both of you. simon, i know you say the republican focus on reducing taxes you think is all wet? >> no. i think we're seeing progress here. i think that there is a chance, there could be a big deal done by the end of the year, first few months of next year, that involve four pieces right? raising taxes, reforming entitlements, cutting defense and cutting some spending in the rest of the budget. i think all those things are on the table. democrats have shown willingness to do all those things. remember mitt romney criticized barack obama during the campaign for cutting medicare by $716 billion. democrats reformed entitlement programs. we're not scared about that but it has to be done as part of a broader package and i think we're making progress. jon: well the criticism specifically i think people have heard that he cut medicare and then
